...painted by the hands of my children during a Christmas week outing,
Make My Monday!
I think it was Christmas Thursday that we gathered everyone -- well, almost everyone; Kevin's plate is missing because we hadn't given him and Emily fair warning and they made other plans* -- and went to the Fat Cat Pottery, a little ceramics shop in the town down the road from us. We brought a mirror and a mission and just a little bit of goofiness, and came up with these,
my Christmas presents from the children:
|Super Family: Paul, Nicole, and Gavin (our little cherub)|
I love that Paul sees his family the same way we do. :)
|Jon and Dominic|
Dig the piano keys around the edge of Jon's plate. And the Latin on Dominic's: Ecce Homo; Ecce Quam Bonum ~ Behold the man; behold it is good. (snickersnicker. It is!)
|Michelle and Theresa |
Shell is known as "Chicky" to her brothers and looks so pretty in just the shade of teal she chose. I love Theresa's smile and her red glasses match her real ones.
|Anna and Cathy|
Can you see who is the silly goose here and who is the prim and proper girl?
I'm planning to group them on a wall but haven't decided where yet. I'll let you know what I figure out.
*So, you owe me a plate, Kevvy... Maybe at Easter?
